Guy nice collection of Volvo’s. The single axle flat bed you made into a tractor is very nice, I had the same cab from a twin screw dump truck made by Conrad which was turned into a twin screw tractor then a single axle tractor like yours and now it is a single axle dump with a Don Mills body.

Steve,

I hope to see some day pictures of the Volvo truck you mention (and of some other models of yours, by the way!).

Guy very nice shots of all the tractors and trailers. I really like The Renault cab over its right up there on my list with the yellow single axle Renault tractor.
Guy I do some customizing and I like doing dioramas of jobs i actually did, same as your crew, but I gotta say you guys got the skills.
As far as pictures I am technically retarded (not politically correct but the only way I can describe it) I just cannot post pictures, but send me your email and I can get them to you that way. I just have to get the nod from my manager Craig The Cabover Quinellaliner.

Guy: I like the Berliet and Siccard tractors. The long noses look cool. I guess you can tell by now that Steve is a dipstick. I have to tell him everything. Craig

Guy the number of models you have is as impressive as the customization you do to them. I will get some pictures over to today.

What the heck kind of grammar is that? Do youz guyz speak like this up there? It should read either, "I will get some pictures over to you today.", or, " I'll get some pictures over today.". I'm starting to wonder why I hang out with you. CAW

Guy I sent some pictures to you if you do not receive them let me know because the first set I sent, I got a message saying they were not delivered.
Thanks
Steve

Craig I’m practicing to be a mobster so I have speak like that because I don’t want nobody disrespecting me, and also maybe I will gain some street cred, then be able to hang out with you and your posse down in NC. Or I just didn’t proof read before I hit “post.
By the way Craig did you know the Nelson ramp trailer you have had for the past 10 years has a lift axle on it, or did Chuck not advertise that feature.

Yes Steve: I now know about the Nelson ramp trailer. But since I do not open many models, I never took it out of the box. I recently sold it, so now it's history.
